Isolation of Sporothrix schenckii from nature and considerations on its pathogenicfty and ecology

, : Isolation of Sporothrix schenckii from nature and considerations on its pathogenicfty and ecology. Sabouraudia. 7: 1, 38-45

Of 125 samples of plant debris and soil examined, 7 yielded S. schenckii. These isolates were pathogenic for the mouse. More frequently, nonpathogenic isolates (Graphium, Ceratocystis, etc.) were isolated which were similar to S. schenckii on Sabouraud's glucose agar but did not produce pigmented radula spores on cornmeal agar or willow wood . Of 157 sporotrichosis patients studied, 75 related their infection to armadillo hunting. S. schenckii was not isolated from the skin, intestine, liver, spleen, or lungs of 15 armadillos (Dasypus septemicinctus) examined. S. schenckii was isolated from dry grass found in an armadillo burrow, from 4 of 24 rotting palm trunks (frequently inhabited by armadillos, rodents, etc.), and from 1 of 74 soil samples from open places. The positive soil was sandy, damp, covered with moss, and partially protected from direct exposure to sunshine.
